The PERFECT Beach Blanket… Is Made Out of WHAT?!


What if I told you that all takes for the perfect beach blanket is a flat bed sheet, tent stakes, and shoelaces? Well, it’s true! It’s seriously that easy to create a beach blanket that repels sand, stays in place, dries quickly, packs compactly, and remains spread out while you use it. Sawdust 2 Stitches came up with this brilliant hack to create a solution to all our beach problems – it’s lightweight, inexpensive, and ideal for every day on the shore!


Flat sheet, shoelaces, tent stakes, sewing machine (or sewing kit if sewing by hand)


Cut footlong sections of shoelace and tie knots in each, then fold the corners of the sheet over the shoelace loops and sew in place. That’s it! For detailed set by step instructions, check out Sawdust 2 Stitches. Don’t forget to take along your tent stakes – now get ready for some worry-free relaxation under the sun!
